Low-income seniors who need help covering their assisted living costs in Coral Springs may be eligible for medical and nonmedical services through the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-term Care Program.

SMMC LTC services may include attendant care, case management, medication administration and personal care. Seniors who qualify for Medicaid-funded nursing home placement can also apply for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a managed care program that delivers home and community-based services using a multidisciplinary team model.
